Alo Cropped Tailored Crew Neck

Alo has so many different options when it comes to crop tops, but their sweatshirts truly impress. With slightly larger, super comfortable sleeves and an extra short crop, the Alo Cropped Tailored Crew Neck is great for extra slightly colder days or a studio workout where you want to get your sweat on without feeling like you’re in a sauna. There are currently three colors to choose from— ivory, black, and espresso.

Alo Seamless Open Air Long Sleeve

If you want to feel extra sexy in a crop top, opt for Alo’s Seamless Open Air Long Sleeve. With mesh sleeves and a cutout pattern, it still supports your body through any workout. Choose from black or white. This top is so unique and wild, you might have to buy both colors. 

CiaoGym Essential Crop Top

The CiaoGym Essential Crop Top is great for most workouts, whether it’s a toning Pilates session or an intense round of tennis (yes, it offers UV protection). Snug but comfortable, it enhances the body while being easy to move in. A quality product, it’s resistant to pilling, is breathable, has eight-way stretch, and supports muscles. The side-paneling is chic and sporty. Choose from warm taupe, off-white, or black.

Looking for a lightweight crop that works with just about any pair of shorts or leggings? The Popflex Active City Crop Tee is it. Not at all basic, this 100% cotton T-shirt, which comes in sizes up to 3X, has a reversible bow that can be tied in the back or front. Choose from black, white, and rose taupe, or go for a bundle of three and save a few dollars.
